MIAMI GARDENS, FL – OCTOBER 14: Trayone Gray /

"On the failed onside kick attempt to start the second half… “If we executed it properly, it was there. They kind of bunched their guys. We line up our guys a certain way. When they line up a certain way, we see that if we pop it into a certain spot [Braxton] Berrios is running down the field, he’s supposed to catch it on the run, was what was supposed to happen. We didn’t kick it far enough. So Berrios is kind of hoping and praying the thing goes far enough to get on it and it never did. And in doing so, Berrios is kind of waiting…past the line cause it has to go 10 yards, so he’s waiting like, ‘please come so I can get on it’ and it never got that far. That’s why he was out of position, and they did a beautiful job of scooping it up and scoring. It was a gift, but it was a calculated risk that we felt was there and there’s a way to call it off if the look’s not right. The look was right, we just didn’t execute and it put us in a bad situation.”"
